A while back, I wrote about Amy Moser’s 20 surgeries to repair multiple tendon and ligament ruptures, spinal degeneration, and widespread arthritis after using Cipro. These newest warnings were not in time to help Amy and untold others that have suffered.
Evidence: Fluoroquinolones Damage Mitochondrial DNA, Causes Rapid Aging
This study “Ciprofloxacin impairs mitochondrial DNA replication through inhibition of Topoisomerase 2″ gives a great amount of insight into the damage that ciprofloxacin does.
Mitochondria are organelles in cells that produce most of the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – the source of energy for the cell. The organelles possess their own small circular genome, and require the use of topoisomerase enzymes to maintain it.
The study’s authors found the severe adverse effects caused by the drugs include:
- tendon rupture
- central and peripheral neuropathies
- psychiatric symptoms such as severe and persistent depression
Also ciprofloxacin has also been reported to interfere with significant cell differentiation processes, such as spermatogenesis (57), fetal brain development (41), bone mineralization (58), as well as to induce renal toxicity and heart arrhythmia (59). Mitochondrial DNA play a central role in all of these physiological processes, making mitochondrial impairment a likely culprit for the disturbed cellular physiology.” (source)
All fluoroquinolones are topoisomerase interrupters, impairing DNA replication
All other topoisomerase-interrupting drugs ARE CHEMO DRUGS.
This is not just an American problem. This International esposé is excellent.
The article, “Fluoroquinolone-induced serious, persistent, multisymptom adverse effects” published in the British Journal of Medicine, goes over four cases of people who were healthy, active and athletic prior to taking fluoroquinolone antibiotics who are now disabled because of their reactions. Please read through this prior to taking a fluoroquinolone antibiotic.
ALL Fluoroquinolones can Devastate DNA!
They also cause:
- detachment of the retina in the eyes (BMJ Open, 2015)
- bulges or tears in the aorta called aortic aneurysm (JAMA Internal Medicine, 2015)
- aortic dissection (JAMA Internal Medicine, 2015)
Healthcare professionals should be aware of the following (but are they?):
- They should NOT be prescribed for acute sinusitis, acute bacterial bronchitis, and uncomplicated urinary tract infections
- There is a risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) that may result in coma for elderly patients and those taking insulin
- Psychiatric adverse reactions may occur even after just ONE dose
Other life-altering problems with fluoroquinolones, but they continue to be prescribed:
TRS Can Remove Fluoride
- TRS removes toxins with a positive charge including: aluminum, mercury, arsenic, fluoride, barium, strontium, uranium, lead etc), herbicides and pesticides, mold and yeast toxins, carcinogens from smoke and haze, plastic residues, and radioactive material in the body.
- Zeolites have a high negative charge and a strong affinity for positively-charged toxins.
- Toxins are captured within the zeolites’ cage-like structure and is rendered inert and has no chance of breaking loose.
- TRS does not allow redistribution of toxins and damage to the body.
- See complete PubMed studies here.
In all honesty, TRS can remove fluoride, but we do not know whether it can do anything to reverse the DNA damage that has been done. If it were my loved one, I would want to know and give it a solid 1 year test for such a debilitating situation. Leave your email in comments. I do coaching with every order through my link.
